WATER MONITORING DATA
Roland Rivercare Catchment Inc currently have 4 water monitoring
sites in the catchment - 2 on the Dasher River and one each on the
Don and the Minnow.
each site the following data is recorded:
(important during willow removal work to ensure that there are
no adverse effects on the ecology of a river section by removal
of trees shading the water)
(how clear or cloudy the water is - an indication of disturbances
in the river upstream, wash down as a result of earth works, soil
tillage or of bank erosion)
(this is a measure of the dissolved salts in the water ie salinity)
(whether the water is acid, alkaline or neutral - a number of
things can affect this - low water levels, effluent or other discharges
into the river)
monitoring will complement that undertaken by North West Waterwatch
